About the Author

Fiona Roberts, Southern General Hospital, Glasgow, UKChee Koon Thum, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, UK


"This is a very comprehensive atlas and textbook on the macroscopic and microscopic histopathology of the embryonic, childhood, adolescent and adult eyes. ... I recommend this book for all ophthalmology residents, fellows, and experts of eye diseases. Internists and pathologists will benefit from the highest quality full color details presented here. I have no reservations in recommending this book." (Joseph J. Grenier,, September, 2015) The approach of the book is unconventional; chapters reflect the categories of specimens sent to pathologists, rather than the conventional anatomical approach that only really works if one already has Ophthalmic Pathology experience. [T]his is unequivocally the "textbook of choice" for the trainee ophthalmic pathologist and general histopathologist. It is also highly recommended to trainee and senior ophthalmologists, and as a reference book to ophthalmic professionals and researchers. (MA Parsons, Eye News, 2004;10(4):84) The `hands-on' structure should make this book a mandatory item in the laboratory. (Holger Baatz, Ophthalmologica 2003;217(5):5) [T]he intention of the author is to provide general pathologists with a concise but nevertheless complete bench-book and guide them through the intricacies of eye dissection, appropriate sampling, and microscopic examination. New data from literature have been included. The author's goals have been fully met. The coverage is systematic and the writing exceptionally clear. This is an ideal book for practicing general pathologists who only occasionally see eye specimens and usually need considerable guidance and support while examining ophthalmic biopsies or surgically resected bulbi and other surgical ophthalmic specimens. As a general pathologist, I have consulted this book and found it to be a valuable source of information. Even though there are several excellent textbooks of ophthalmic pathology, this one would be definitely my first choice.(Doody's Book Review Service (TM), 5 stars, Ivan Damjanov)
